ALL WE NEED IS LOVE

Interpreting Community

.4 PS CEUs... AVAILABLE NOW!
 

The Interpreting Community can be a difficult place. Insecurities, egos, bad experiences, and fears can turn a career into a pile of scar tissue. The Interpreting Community needs a new perspective, a new vision, and this workshop can begin to make that happen. Watch as 13 Hearing interpreters/interpreting students explain what they have experienced in the field of Interpreting, both the good, and the bad. Listen to Deaf consumers tell their stories about how interpreters have negatively affected the environment with their ego and competition. Find out from why all this drama exists, then learn how we can make changes and influence this field for the better. This workshop is raw, emotional, and honest. If you have been wounded in the field, it will be cathartic. If you have been one of the "wounders", it will be convicting. No matter what, whether you are an interpreting student or a 35 year veteran, this workshop will contain truths to which you will relate. This workshop seeks to re-frame the interpreting community...
IN LOVE.

2021 Pricing: $55

GLOSSING FAUX PAS'

General  Interpreting 

COMING SOON!

Interpreters get into a groove, but they often don't realize the common mistakes made in their expressive interpreting. WHEN vs. WHEN, WHY vs. REASON,  clumping vs. dropping, deleted pronouns, etc. Advanced interpreters make these mistakes often just as much as the newbies. Like to talk "glossing"? This is the workshop for you!

IT'S NOT ALL ABOUT THE DEAF

Platform / Performance / General  Interpreting

COMING SOON!
 

Interpreters work diligently to gloss their interpretations in such a way that the words presented are effective for their Deaf consumers. They work to make environments accessible visually, and to be sure the needs of the Deaf are acknowledged. However, Deaf consumers are not our only consumers. RID believes both Hearing and Deaf consumers need an interpreter's attention and support. Often interpreter's Hearing consumers are disregarded, disrespected, and even ignored. This workshop tackles the mistakes Hearing interpreters make, and how those errors negatively affect their Hearing and Deaf consumers in very unexpected ways.

Coffee & ASL Interpreting with Facial Expression

IT'S ON YOUR FACE

Performance / General Interpreting

COMING SOON!
 

Your face communicates more than you can possibly imagine. Interpreters focus their time on how to communicate information through words presented in sign language, when over 90% of communication, even in verbal languages, is communicated WITHOUT words via the face & body. This workshop discusses the power of facial expressions, and gives you a chance to practice your skills in a safe and private environment. If you want to be incredibly effective in any interpreting environment, this workshop is for you! No matter what field you are in, these skills are applicable. Join us for this super fun, and super challenging workshop. It will change your perspective and your career.
